Little dining table
#11
  
44" round cherry table for the smallish dining room in the retirement house.  Legs splayed at 5 degrees, just shy of 1-7/8 with a 7/8 radius roundover on all four edges.  Looking back, I should have turned these with a bit of taper to he bottom, or used a 1" radius roundover.  Still look a bit too 'square' for me, even tho I intended to leave them square altogether at the beginning.  Top is something close to 1-1/8 thick, with 7/8 roundover above and chamfer below.  Attached with Rockler fasteners.  The apron profile is similar to Stickley side table I saw in Old House magazine (legs were square on that one).

I whipped up a prototype out of MDF to verify I liked the angles, and because I KNEW I'd screw up the compound miters on the legs if I didn't 'practice'.  That was time well spent.  Laugh   

I'll be ordering #5 slatback chair kits from Shaker Workshops (their picture).  I think they'll go nicely with the 'simple' design of the table.   Thanks for taking a peek.

No apologies need for the legs on that very stylish table.  I think they go really well with the overall design.  Nicely done.

Love it, looks like  building the prototype paid off!
I started with absolutely nothing. Now, thanks to years of hard work, careful planning, and perseverance, I find I still have most of it left.

Really like that table.  Clean and comfortable-looking.

Also like the choice of ladderback chair.

Nice table, KC.

Can you let us know about the quality of those chair kits?

Thank you.  I'll do a thread about the chairs when they come, probably early next month.

Nice table. Beautiful work. I also like the choice of chairs. I'm not bothered by the legs. However, I'll make a suggestion in the event you decide to turn them. I would start the taper just below the skirt leaving the rounded square from there up. This would allow the rounded square to gradually transition to a round cross section as it goes to the bottom. This would also keep you from having to change any joinery you have to the table top.
